A method for isolating pigmented cellulolytic Pythium from soil


, : A method for isolating pigmented cellulolytic Pythium from soil. Transactions of the British Mycological Society 75(3): 491-492

P. fluminum var. fluminum was detected in 30 of 54 soils from sites around Belfast when samples were saturated with sterile distilled water and strips of cellophane or filter paper laid on the surface. Following incubation for 2-7 days at 12-22 deg C the characteristic mycelium and oospores were present on cellophane and pink colonies on filter paper. Populations estimated by the plate method were 2.175 units g-1 soil and by the tube method 1.872 units g-1.

Increased intraocular scatter degrades quality of vision, especially in the presence of glare sources. Standard tests, such as visual acuity, are not well suited to capture this condition. There are specific methods to measure intraocular scatter,...
